Rational has landed a manufacturing award that credits its approach to environmentally-friendly production.
The German combi oven firm joined companies such as BMW and Fiat in winning the 2014 ‘Lean & Green Management Award’ presented in its home market.
Rational picked up the accolade in the SME category, with the judges paying tribute to its “impressive green successes in energy, water, waste and sewage consumption figures” throughout the manufacturing process.
The company claims that the estimated lifetime savings of using a Rational is £4,000 for an electric model, based on a 12-year life.
It also calculates that the latest 5 Sense SelfCookingCenter model cuts energy consumption by up to 20%, compared to previous models, and up to 70% compared to a traditional kitchen without a combi steamer.
